About the Moore County Community Foundation
An affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation, the Moore County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partners for donors. The MCCF was founded in 1991 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership—all for the benefit of Moore County.
The MCCF board advises the Moore County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Advisory board members live and work in Moore County, putting them in a position to strategically leverage resources, meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Sugg, board members include: Peggy Richardson (vice president), Claudia Miller (secretary), Ellen Airs, Betsy Best, Hugh Bingham, Kea Capel, Blanchie Carter, Brantley Clifton, Marilyn Morgan Grube, Olujide Lawal, Patricia Niebauer, Randall Phillips, Lori Portfleet, Tony Price, Alice Robbins, Pam Wase and Greg Zywockinski.
The MCCF, through the NCCF, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount. Tax-deductible contributions, made payable to the Moore County Community Foundation, can be mailed to the North Carolina Community Foundation, 3737 Glenwood Ave. Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. Contributions can also be made online at www.nccommunityfoundation.org
